Kangaroo Loose in Fort Lauderdale Apprehended by Police

Crikey! Police apprehended a kangaroo that was on the loose Thursday morning in Fort Lauderdale. Residents living near North Andrews Avenue and 13th Street reported seeing a runaway kangaroo hopping through their neighborhood. Fort Lauderdale police officers arrived and, with the help of wildlife officers, were able to leash the kangaroo and guide the animal into the back of a police cruiser. Police safely captured the kangaroo, but the marsupial avoided a trip to the slammer. Instead, the Australian tourist was taken to the South Florida Wildlife Center.
